With the GR Supra GT4, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing strengthens its focus on customer racing in order to enable motorsport-lovers to compete around the world.

Development began in early 2019 and included an exhaustive test programme, covering more than 12,000km. Since then it has established itself as a race winner in customer hands in Europe, Japan and the United States.
